Now that you have gotten engaged to the love of your life and are looking forward to decades of happiness, it’s time to put in the planning necessary to have the perfect wedding you’ve been dreaming of for years. To do so means there’s no time left to lose. With so much to do and so many details to keep track of, here’s your checklist to make sure the big day goes off without a hitch.
Choose More than One Date
Once you get engaged, sit down with your significant other, family, and friends and choose your wedding date. However, don’t choose only one date. Instead, have two or three in mind. By doing so, you can have some flexibility built into your plans, just in case your desired venue isn’t available or Mother Nature has a bad day or other situations arise along the way.
Pick Out Wedding Rings
While many couples think choosing their wedding rings will be simple and quick, it’s usually anything but that. Since you need to factor in styles, prices, and the time needed for a jeweler to create custom wedding rings, get with your special someone and head off to the jewelry store as soon as possible.
Hire a Photographer
Since this will be one of the most special days of your life, make sure you capture these wonderful memories by hiring the very best wedding photographer you can afford. By doing so, you’ll be guaranteed to have a wedding album you can look at fondly as the years go by. Unfortunately, many people make the mistake of just letting a friend who swears they can take great pictures handle this task. Should you make this mistake, you may regret it for the rest of your life.
Establish a Fitness Routine
Needless to say, brides and grooms both want to look their best on their wedding day. To do so, you should establish a fitness routine several months prior to your wedding. While you don’t have to do anything drastic such as crash diets or extreme exercise routines leading up to the big day, establishing a routine where you eat healthily, exercise in moderation, and get plenty of sleep will keep you stress-free and looking great as your wedding approaches.
By getting started on these tasks as soon as possible, you’ll be able to focus on other tasks as well, such as planning your honeymoon. While it may take some time and work, it will be worth it as you walk down the aisle and prepare to say your vows.
